Theatre and Ethics
Performing Feeling in Cultures of Memory pp Cite as. The rest of the audience left this performance all at once, clumsily, loudly, in rebuke of having to see something that they had not come for: a scene which, it seems, had no place in the theatre at all. The scene was the relentless bashing of a man by performers wearing police uniforms wielding batons. The set housing these men was a vast marble cavern that, in the setup to the bashing, had allowed voluminous fake blood poured from plastic water bottles to swim across the white, opulent bureaucracy of the space. Before the blood was poured, the space had been cleaned. A black female cleaner entered with a mop: the rhythmic lethargy in her mopping occurring well before the entry of two men, who dressed themselves in police uniforms and set out crime scene markers as evidence and history of a death. They then poured the blood over a third man, who had meanwhile undressed to stand near-naked between the markers in preparation for his bloody, brutal beating.

That this question has an implicitly theatrical, as well as straightforwardly ethical aspect is a relationship that Ridout goes on to explore, and one that became a key foundation in the development of my project. Napoleon is alleged to have said to Goethe that the role that fate had in the ancient world becomes the force of politics in the modern world. There were an extraordinary number of Greek tragedies of one form or another presented on British stages in the years this research took place. Elsewhere, there were further major productions of Antigone , Medea , as well as new stagings of The Illiad and The Odyssey. This range of work suggests a potentially broader concern with the fundamental qualities of Greek tragedy than a mere programming fashion.
